Tzatziki Hummus

Tzatziki Hummus #vegan #glutenfree #foodbymars

I'm combining the essence of a tzatziki sauce (cucumber, dill, garlic, lemon) with the loveliness of hummus! Hummus is super easy, provided you have a food processor or a blender... a can of chickpeas, olive oil plus your imagination and you have a delicious dip or spread in minutes. 


  • 1 medium cucumber
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tsp dried dill
  • a 15oz. can of chicpeas/garbanzo beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp tahini sauce (optional)
  • dash of salt


  1. Slice the cucumber in half length-wise and scoop out the seeds in the middle with a spoon. Pat the cucumber dry with a paper towel (no one likes a runny hummus!)
  2. Roughly chop the cucumbers and set aside.
  3. In a food processor or blender, combine all ingredients and pulse until smooth.
  4. Taste and adjust the salt/olive oil/dill to your liking. Serve and enjoy! Should last 3-5 days stored in the fridge in a closed container.
